id’s Rage, Doom 4 and Sequel to Rage Detailed by Tim Willits, Rage Preloadable on Steam
id’s Software Creative Director Tim Willits discussed about the studios upcoming game titles in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz. Tim detailed Rage, Doom 4 and a possible sequel to Rage “Rage 2″if the games sells good enough, He also revealed that a bunch of DLC’s would arrive first for the game before the official announcement of the new title:
When I came to see you for the Rage announcement you were already talking about it being a franchise, can developers just not afford to make standalone titles in the current climate?
Willits: You need to make a franchise, especially for us. We’re doing everything we can to turn it into a franchise, “please let it sell so we can make another one!”
So we definitely, from the get go, planned to make this a much bigger franchise, a much richer world, that allows us to have different games, and we can make more mobile games, heck, we could make a social game with Rage if we wanted to. And hopefully we can make a Rage 2. Hopefully.
id’s highly successful shooter franchise Doom was also discussed and Tim detailed that the studios was currently working on the title which was revealed back in 2008. The last Doom game was released back in 2004 “Doom 3” and the next title is expected to launch sometime in 2012, Details below:
Willits: We had to say that we were hiring folks [for Doom 4], so we had a long internal debate and we were like “why don’t we just tell people?” So we said we were hiring, but at that point we only had one guy working on it. But it was the best way to get resumes, because everybody wants to work on a Doom game.
You can also Pre-Load Rage on Steam if you Pre-Ordered it or you can buy the Anarchy Edition directly from here. The game set to be released on Tuesday would use id’s new id Tech 5 Engine which features Ultra Hi Res Textures and better lightning effect, Don’t miss out this Epic title.
